A return visit to the Samaya Ubud. As per the previous visit, the room is well appointed, comfy bed, sound of the River Agung from the villa, large jacuzzi, yummy room service, views of paddy fields from breakfast area, on demand drop off and pick up to ubud areas.

Service here is second to none. Attention to every detail, from making the effort to pull up our previous passport details and not requiring us to provide passports a second time, to going the extra mile to buy a milk bottle brush and sending it to another location in Ubud for me, Kedek and his team of staff must be commended.
Thank you for taking such good care of us again.

It is hard to fault The Samaya, Ubud. We did The Samaya Package, splitting our time between Ubud and Seminyak. The package offers all sort of bolt-ons which in fact made it good value. We particularly appreciated the fast-track on arrival at the airport and then the on-demand shuttles around the areas. It just made life so easy: if we went to a restaurant, we were taken and collected, etc. The package also included a glorious two-hour session at The Spa where the therapists were first class. The location is amazing, pitched on the side of the gorge, but it did mean we were reliant on the buggies to ferry us up to breakfast or reception - not that this was ever a problem. I can only repeat everyone else's comments: this is a wonderful place with amazing staff and superb food. We loved every moment and will undoubtedly return. Bali is an excellent stop-off en route between the UK and Australia and this is the perfect place to chill for a few days to break the journey.

Room Tip: We loved being between the main restaurant and the spa which are more or less on the flat.

All the positive reviews here about the wonderful rooms, the attentive service, the beautiful surroundings and great food are absolutely spot on, but for me, it was their attention to the small details which was particularly impressive.

Our experience began even before we arrived. Questions by email were promptly answered in less than a day. My question was about the beds, and the answers came illustrated with photos. Upon booking, a confirmation email arrived, with a map of the resort, a map of the airport terminal showing where the hotel driver would meet us, and even a photo of a driver in his hotel uniform holding the hotel sign. In short, all uncertainties were minimised.

The manager personally welcomed us on arrival (he was also there to see us off on check out). Check in was accompanied by a tour of the resort and when we got to our villa, the butler patiently explained every detail of the villa to us.

The Bose speaker in the room could only dock with an iPhone, so I asked for a 3.5mm cable to attach my Android phone. The butler immediately knew what I needed and returned just minutes later. He was apologetic that he didn't have a cable, but provided a bluetooth docking adapter--which was even better!

Breakfast was taken in our villa. We found that besides the food, the hotel also gave us copies of their ih-house "newspaper". This had snippets of various international news but also had our names printed on it--a wonderful souvenir!

Finally, because we were only staying for a few days, we had to book our tours at very short notice. The hotel handled this very well and made all the arrangements for us seamlessly and flawlessly.

Food tip: The rijstaffel on Tuesdays at the Swept Away Restaurant is not to be missed! Unlike rijstaffels elsewhere in Indonesia, this one features traditional Balinese dishes.

Room Tip: Two and three bedroom villas are also available for families. These are walled-in, so no view but th...

everything was just beautiful the villa with its private pool, the breakfast restaurant which overlooks the rice field and the dinner restaurant with it is view of the river.
all you want to do there is to be lazy,relax and enjoy the beautiful nature around you.
the cooking class experience was very nice and fun.

I stayed at this resort following a recommendation from a friend and it was exceptional! The service was of a very high standard. We were met at the airport by a private chauffeur for our transfer. The staff members at the Samaya Ubud were incredibly polite and personable. The villas were outstanding; clean, large in size and the setting was beautiful.

Although the location of this villa is quiet, as a retreat and an opportunity to get to experience rural and cultured Bali; it was fantastic. I have stayed at a number of hotels and villas and the Samaya Ubud was far superior and I absolutely credit this to the brilliant staff members who gave a phenomenal resort an unrivalled advantage. I would absolutely recommend this resort!!

Room Tip: 3 days is generally enough time in any area in Bali, I would recommend a split stay with the Samaya...
